So perhaps you should have been aborted instead of being born into poverty? Case closed no lawsuit because no child.
Perhaps you should just be happy to be alive.
a reply to: Profusion
money are not everything. You understand it outside USA in most cases. Abortion is not the answer, but the responsible parenthood needs responsible
planning as well, without using any abortive practices, imo. The kid is not raised by simply providing for food and money for school.
Even the animals are raised with enough food and care because their owners have good use of them. People are more than that. Supposedly, people have
to be above the animal level of understanding the life. Many moved beyond, but many didn't.
Even when pretending religious practices. In some cases involving religion instead of psychology of chidlren's age, makes the things worse. Religious
education is something very good, if not at the expense of the rest.
And, if someone just cannot care enough for a child or children, why not to ask relatives to take care of it? Sure there are such who would love to
have a child, who cannot have their own or who want one more.
The idea the child belongs to parents physically, emotionally, etc, is wrong. Of course it is dependent, subordinated, and should learn to obey...but
to what degree? Not to the Army subordination, I guess.
That process ends at the age of 18 in USA but it ends in practical terms at the age of 15-16 when the kid is grown up enough to live his/her own
lifestyle. Especially if he/she starts making own money.
In contrast, in many EU countries the traditions are still alive, to let the grown up kids to live with their parents as long as they want to, that
sometimes goes long years after their marriage. Of course you have a completely different psychic in first place where the older ones live together
with younger ones and enrich each other, help each other, in one or nearby large enough house. Not the room space alone but the space in heart is what
determines those relations.
That is not seen very often in the West esp America where it seems everyone individually have boarded some kind of a life-train of no return...to
where? They can't answer going to where. They just want to move away from their parents, from their past, from themselves...as thanksgiving for years
cares, but also years of ill understood parenthood that pays a very hard price, much sooner than expected.
Parents must be much more responsible and realize they are entitled to teach individual SOULS to live better, even before providing food and clothes
and talk 90% at home for money matters.
May be I am wrong for many of you.
